Default Re: upland hunting and dogs

American Irish setters suffered the curse of "popularity", and were bred into idiocy. I had no idea what extraordinary dogs Irish Setters were until I saw a pair of them in England. Holy Cow! It was difficult to tell they were the same breed!

Can't argue with the Lab sentiment. I owned them for most of my life. I love 'em. However, now that I don't hunt upland birds or waterfowl anymore, I got a Scottish Terrier when my last Lab died. That Scotty is a RIOT! But the only hunting they do is for critters that "go to ground": Badgers, rabbits, etc.
